On Sunday, I turned on the faucet to water the garden. The Pipsqueak was playing in the pool, and I thought it was a perfect time. I could do double duty: keep an eye on her, and get a garden chore done.
Then she asked for a towel. They were inside, on the dryer. No problem. She's a good swimmer, and our pool is only 3 feet deep, anyway. So I popped inside to get her a towel, and all of the sudden I heard this noise.
POW!!!!!! (and the sound of water running.... gushing, really)
My first thought was "Oh my gosh, she popped a hole in the pool!"
So, I go running outside to see what she's done, and she's fine. The pool is fine. BUT - - there was a giant rooster tail of water spraying skyward... from the middle of my hose.
Dammit. I turned the water on and then left it. Dammit.
Of course, I thought this was the perfect time to tell The Guy that I wanted one of those cool crinkly hoses that don't weigh anything and that you can stuff in your pocket when you're done watering. BECAUSE WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO STUFF A HOSE IN YOUR POCKET!!!???!!!
Well, The Guy, of course. He dutifully reminded me that we have several hoses I can choose from, that do not require a purchase or even a pocket.
Of course, he got sidetracked by the mice that we have living in our water heater closet yesterday after work, so this morning, I got a shower while I was watering the garden. Doing double duty... I guess I should be glad I'm able to use my time so wisely!!!
